Goodman Theatre launches the 2015/2016 Playwrights Unit with four newly-named members: Kristiana Rae Colón, Sandra Delgado, Jenni Lamb and Calamity West. In partnership with Chicago Dramatists, the Playwrights Unit is a year-long residency program designed to foster new work by emerging and established Chicago playwrights. Participating writers attend bi-monthly meetings with members of the Goodman’s artistic team to discuss their plays-in-progress and provide feedback for one another. The residency culminates in summer 2016 with public staged readings at the Goodman of their completed works. “I’m thrilled to welcome this talented group of Chicago-based playwrights and theater makers to the 2015/16 Playwrights Unit,” said Director of New Play Development Tanya Palmer. “Each brings a unique perspective and set of experiences to the group, and the plays they have proposed to work on over the next year promise to be challenging, relevant and full of life. I know they will all benefit from the collaboration with their peers, and I look forward to sharing the results of their hard work with our audiences in the summer of 2016.”
